7 Quirky Cafes To Visit In London

 If cats are your thing then you need to get down to Lady Dinahs pronto! Their shop contains nine cats all for your stroking. They do point out that they bring up the cats in a stress free environment and suggest you read about there rules of conduct before you visit. All the cats have their own personal Twitter account which I presume is updated by their erm personal assistants!! You cannot wonder in off the street though, you do need to book. What food do they offer??? Due to the license they own, they cannot offer hot food so expect rather delightful cream teas, cakes and bagels. You can Book Here and read more about their menu here Lady Dinahs Menu

How about a cafe that combines eating alongside cutting hair. Yes, they do exist Hurwundeki serves Korean food for lunch and dinner with pastries for sale in the morning made by nearby Yeast Bakery.  The cafe was created by a Korean stylist called Ki Lee. So now you can now kill two birds with one stone. Although at the moment they are only offering cuts . No one wants they smell of bleach wavering over their food. Located in East London you can book both on line and via telephone. This is a sample of their menu Yummy Food Alert and their hair menu  Here

 ATTENDANTIf you don't mind eating your food from an ex Victorian toilet then The Attendant may just be the cafe for you!

Tucked away Great Titchfield street. They sell a range of breakfasts such as porridge's, breakfast muffins and soups, rolls and various salads for lunch. Their range of menu Here

I just had to include this cafe in this list. I mean c'mon look how pretty it is and who doesn't like biscuits??  They have two cafe/stores. One in Notting Hill and the other in Northcote Road. Both offer cream tea's which are required to be booked prior. They also offer an exhausting choice (but in a good way!) of icing classes. If you are looking to add another string to your bow then you may find the class that you're after here. If you are interested in learning more about their icing classes then Look Here! for more information. They simply are the most amazing biscuits and I would not share my lot with anyone. Afternoon Tea Menu

Another east end gaffe (they also have a shop in Camden)  this cafe as the name suggests sells cereals although they don't kill you afterwards!
